What jobs that are unskilled are offering 12 bucks an hour in benefits? Certainly not enough jobs to help the stats.

I'm going with the historical data which indicates you are almost always wrong.

As a top rate driver at UPS earning \$30 = \$45-\$50 with bennies (not including OT) !

My intuition tells me you are wrong ... I'm going with my gut feeling.

Well, you as a sup should know how much a healthcare plan costs for a family.
Lets say \$2000 ! Now divide that by 30 days.
That's an extra \$70 a day or almost \$10 per hr.
Now add vacation time, piad sick leave, and paid breaks, and whatever else you have a bennie for.
And then add the OT at \$45/hr rate to it all !

Actually my calculation was wrong, you don't work 30 days a month, but rather 20 or 22. (weekends off).
So healthcare costs are way above \$10/hr.

Not sure what calendar system you are on but I'm pretty sure it's next to impossible to work 20, 22 OR 30 days a week. Where I'm from the most you can work is 7 days per week.
